Sooooo…everyone said babies are hard work. They weren’t lying. Our first few weeks have been full of ups and downs. My prayers have changed dramatically. I got this bible verse today and it is definitely how I feel. I am so grateful for her, but definitely need God’s help more than ever. Ha! I was warned :), but certainly thought I would have an easy baby. HA!!!!!
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
Luckily she is super cute. The pictures below are from our photo shoot with Addie. She did a beautiful job. Of course, the subject is just precious!
When Tommy was little his grandmother would buy him Steiff bears. We won this one at an auction and I thought it would be fun to watch her grow with it. And she has her eyes open! I think she might be a brown-eyed girl like her mommy and daddy.
This picture is also really special to me. My aunt sent some maternity clothes up from my cousin and included this blanket. To be honest, I wasn’t really sure why she sent it. Later I found out it was my dad’s blanket from when he was a baby, so I definitely wanted to include it in our photo shoot.
Emmy’s three week likes:
- Taking walks in her stroller and riding in her car seat
- White noise and shushing
We do call her our little Princess and the Pea. She is particular! :) For example, when we walk she prefers to be on the street rather than the sidewalk…the bumps wake her up! Ha!
We are hoping to hit our stride with her soon, but do love our little blessing so much!
